Lower Wells Creek Falls

Lower Wells Creek Falls is one of the more difficult falls I've gone to yet. It's only a couple hundred feet from the road but took me an hour to get there. The falls are actually segmented, but you can only see the right half in my picture. It's about 40' tall and maybe a little wider if you add both segments together. While it's fairly impressive seeing this huge creek tear through the area, this is one of the few waterfalls that are probably not worth the trip in. The area around the creek was so brushy that I was looking for Devil's Club plants as a respite from the other stickers. On the bright side, I left with a Gatorade bottle full of some of the most delicious blueberries I've ever tasted. Anyway, I'd leave this one to the experts/nut jobs. I used to refer to this as Excelsior Falls and it is still listed as such in The Waterfall Lovers' Guide.
